Mice that remained free of illness after infection with herpes virus had latent virus in spinal ganglia on the side ipsilateral, but not contralateral to the limb inoculated for 14-99 days. The data demonstrate that induction of latency in neuronal cells is an efficient process which can occur independently of appreciable clinical manifestations.
